When a new show becomes a viral hit on Netflix, it’s an instinct to add it to your watch list and join the fun online conversation surrounding the title. But in the past year, so many new viral hits have consumed the conversation that it can be difficult to keep up with each new release. Perhaps you missed Cobra Kai last year when it made its Netflix streaming debut after leaving YouTube Premium, but that’s a problem that can be solved in no time. Cobra Kai has become one of the most popular Netflix shows, and its third season is now available to binge away.

Picking up over 30 years after the original Karate Kid film, Cobra Kai finds William Zabka and Ralph Macchio reprising their roles as Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso respectively. Johnny’s decision to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo reinvigorates his past rivalry with Daniel as their own personal struggles collide once again in interesting ways. Netflix dropped the third season, its first as an official Netflix original, early on New Year’s Day. The new season furthered the show’s success and critical acclaim, leading to an obvious fourth season renewal. Don’t wait any longer to watch the show everyone’s talking about and won’t stop talking about anytime soon.
